Hi RFC I have a couple of graphics cards available for grabs.

The 7950 GT only uses about 65 watts at peak I believe, yet can still handle the likes of COD4 etc.

Or got an 8800GS

Just unscrew the side of the case, the PSU will have a big label on with it's power rating and the amperage it can provide on the +12V rail (if it's got +12V1, +12V2 etc. then all them up).

No worries...just thought they might suit you as if you go to something more like an 8800GT you might start to push your PSU and have to swap that out too.

GL anyway :thumbsup:

It doesn't matter what it's rated at, the important bit is how many amps (A) it can provide at +12v. For a 9600GT/8800GT you need 26A, for a 4850 you need 30A. Some 350W PSUs are perfectly capable of providing 26A.
